    If words are just words....
    then why do they make themselves at home
    planting seeds
    in fertile minds
    of unstable soil...

    And if words are just words...
    why does a lovers quarrel
    last for years
    sometimes a lifetime
    countless tears...

    marinating and incriminating.....

    reeking havoc in the heart

    w i n d i n g

    &

    g n i d n i w e r
    in the mind...
    manifestations of the heart

    is it that....the harvest never ends......

    This piece speaks to me as none other, or maybe I should say it speaks for me. You have managed to state in short fashion the reality of the dangers that the tongue can bring.:toast:
    thank you

    i agree with So'ja.

    "death and life are in the power of the tongue."- King Solomon.

    words seep through one's mind into his spirit, and then we have causes and effects.
    you did it again 8th with your depth of wisdom.

    peace from the garden.
